Introducing The Vintage Sage Blog!

Yep, my second blog! God help me. Lol! The Vintage Sage is my alter ego. You all know how much I love the movie Practical Magic with all it's magic and whimsey. Well, I decided to start a fun and whimsical blog about magic, folklore and old world traditions! I always found it interesting how the older generations lived and what they believed. For instance, about a year ago I found this great collection of books written all about how the people of the Appalachians lived. How they grew their own vegetables (by the moon phases, etc.)...the folklore they told. Is it all true? Who knows! I believe, though, what YOU believe and how you think (positive thinking) is what can create what's all around us. My belief in God, positive thinking, knowing that things will work out all lends for leading a wonderful life in my humble opinion. So, this blog will just be more of a fun, whimsical touch on what I described above. Part of it will also be finding healthier natural ways of cooking, making beauty products, bath products, teas, etc. Have fun with it!

Oh, I probably won't post as often on The Vintage Sage as I do on here. :) I do have a life outside of blogging (despite what you may think). Lol!
Also, my good friend Marie created the wonderful header for The Vintage Sage. Thank you, Marie! She's a great graphics artist. She also created the header for this blog too!

I don't know where you find the time. But I think it's wonderful. I think natural, unaltered, real things are the way to go. I think we've added way too much additives to all things including life. Michelle, I'll be sure to stop by and see whay your up too and to find out some of the old ways to take care of myself... great idea!! Good Luck!

What a woderful idea! I had heard the same "folklore" about planting and also when to cut one's hair by the "dark side of the moon". What fun to do a blog like this! Have fun! blessings,Kathleen

It's incredibly hard to keep up more than one blog...I don't know how others do it; I have a very hard time.
